Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hello Fellow Planners,

I am filtering by critical path but seem to have some gaps!

Have found these are elapsed duration tasks - is there a reason Asta does not show these in a critical path?

Can any one tell me how to turn on so they show in path?

Kind regards,

craig Adams

Hi Craig

Tasks with elapsed days are calendar day not work days.

If an ed task ends on a weekend or the middle of a holiday the next task on a workday will start on the next work day - leaving some float and therefore losing the critical path.

I only use elapsed days for a curing or drying out lead lag lead links.

If there is no real reason why the tasks should be on an ed calendar then change it to a work calendar.

Just switching the cell fortmat to work days will not solve the problem.

I have not yet discovered a work around for this small but irritating problem.

Best regards
